Prepayment Features with Negative Compensation

Prepayment Features with Negative Compensation

The International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) has proposed minor amendments to the financial instruments Standard, IFRS 9, to enable companies to measure at amortised cost certain prepayable financial assets with so-called negative compensation.

The amendments respond to comments received by the IFRS Interpretations Committee and are intended to improve the usefulness of information about these financial assets that the new Standard requires.
